John Deere’s section control software helps you optimize seed and input placement. There are several advantages to using this feature, including the following:
- Lower your production costs by reducing the amount of seed and inputs used in your fields. Studies have shown a savings of up to 6%.
- Increase your yield potential by reducing over-application and promoting healthy competition between your plants.
- Reduce operator stress and fatigue by automating actions required when overlap occurs and at the end of the field.
Rate controllers help you ensure that the application rate is constant and consistent regardless of the application speed. This helps decrease over- and under-application. Applying products such as pesticides, fertilizers and seeds is easy with the controllers and the section control software.
In addition, you can update your current equipment according to your needs: number of products to be controlled at the same time, type of product (dry or liquid). We offer various solutions!
